The Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement Wednesday.
According to Adesina, the President also praised the security agencies for their determination to ensure that the election went on as smoothly as possible, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the successful conclusion of the exercise despite the initial challenges encountered.
President Buhari enjoined Prof. Soludo, a member of the Presidential Economic Advisory Committee, to rally other stakeholders to tackle the enormous challenges confronting the state and the Southeast in general.
The President looks forward to working with the incoming governor for the peace, security and development of not only Anambra State, but the entire country, the statement said.
